Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my Academic Webpage!

Here you will find the latest updates regarding my academic career.

While my dissertation focuses primarily on Protect and Survive, Politics and culture, and Cold War civil defence in Britain, my academic background and interests encompass a much larger field of late Cold War popular culture in the United States, Britain, and Canada, as well the art of teaching.

I hope this website will serve as a useful chronicle for my professional development as I continue my journey to become a professor and pass on my passion for history and teaching to new students (though some of my idiosyncrasies tend to sneak into this website as well from time to time as you'll soon see!).

Please check out my teaching page for my latest course descriptions!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you return soon,

- Joseph Andrew Buscemi

WARNING: I use the British spelling of "defence"... A lot.
